Wheat Germ Muffins

Recipe by southernitaliangirl

from the back of the Hodgson Mill Wheat Germ box; I made them with honey, the first time, kinda bland, but a good basic muffin.

This was a good basic recipe for a healthy, fiber-full muffin, but it looked like it needed some extras. I added 1 cup of raisins, 1/2 cup of chopped nuts, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg and a splash of vanilla extract. I had to add a couple of extra Tbsps of milk after adding the extras as I felt the batter was a bit too thick. They turned out EXCELLENT! They had a great texture which was not dense or flat! I will most definitely make these again.
